Wizdom Music has introduced Geo Synthesizer – a new software synthesizer and MIDI controller for iOS, available now in the App Store for $10.49.
Geo Synthesizer is a collaboration between Wizdom Music’s Jordan Rudess, Kevin Chartier (MorphWiz, SampleWiz) and Rob Fielding (Mugician). Geo Synthesizer is intended to be an ‘expressive musical instrument specifically created for a multitouch surface’.
Some of the more unique features of Geo Synthesizer are microtonal support, ‘snap speed control’ – which allows for accurate pitch control on a continuously pitched instrument and a unique key layout.
See the demo video above by mvpadrini for a preview of Geo Synthesizer’s patches and potential. Details on Geo Synthesizer are available below.
Geo Synthesizer is a serious & ambitious software synth – but it’s also one that doesn’t fit neatly into the ‘software synth module’ category, with its alternative keyboard and emphasis on microtonal playing.

Jordan Rudess has released SampleWiz, a new sampler for iOS.
“In creating this instrument, I wanted to create something that would appeal to the sonic explorer in all of us,” says Rudess. “Creating a sampler for iOS devices has allowed us to push the boundaries of traditional sampling instruments. From playing a selection of my signature sounds on the SampleWiz keyboard (JR lead anyone?) to getting up close and personal with sounds by playing directly on the waveform screen, our mission was to blow your mind, put a smile on your face, and expand your creativity.”
